Architecture has to resolve the often-conflicting demands of form and functionality. Bespoke and innovative technical solutions from Colt can turn the Architect's vision into reality.
Colt natural daylighting conditions
Colt experts can help architects use natural light to great impact in their designs, making stunning architectural features of daylighting systems such as glazed ventilators, glass rooflights and structural glazing.
Colt conditions: reducing excessive glare and heat
Large areas of glazing in a building can lead to glare, or bring excessive solar heat gain and winter heat loss. Colt's range of daylighting systems can be integrated with solar shading louvres and ventilators to reduce excessive glare and solar heat gain.
To identify the most effective combination, Colt can offer the building designer simulations of how solar shading and daylighting will interact within a specific model.
Colt energy efficiency
Colt can help architects design highly energy efficient buildings by integrating its natural ventilation, glazing and solar shading systems within one design and one control system. This can enable the building to become adaptive to the external environment and thereby potentially highly energy efficient. Integrating photovoltaic cells within the solar shading glass louvres can further enhance energy efficiency.
